PNW HONBASHO 1 - Behind the Wooden Shed Bleachers Pub 8560 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103 10 am Saturday Jan 26th $20 Rookie Entry Fee, $30 Veteran Entry Fee BEAST For the latest and greatest Tecmo Tournament, we will be drawing from the ancient tradition of SUMO. This makes a lot of sense because 1) Tecmo also originated in Japan 2) When players are grappling in Tecmo, it looks a hell of a lot like Sumo wrestling 3) There are a lot of beefy competitors in our Cascadia Contingent. I'm looking at you @XtraLargent 4) @kamphuna8 is a big fan of the sport 5) It provides us with an excuse to incorporate words like Yokozuna, banzuke, and kachi-kochi So for the Honbasho which just means major tournament, we will first determine a pre-tournament ranking, which will be set by past results. The ranking will determine a great deal of the schedule, aka the Banzuke. The first division is the San'yaku. It will be comprised of the four most recent Champions. The San'yaku for this tournament will be: Kamphuna @kamphuna8 The most recent Portland and most recent CFT Season Champion Ptitteri @ptitteriThe most recent Seattle Champion QB Fairfield @fairfensheeding CFT 2 Champion Vader @invader_star64 Portland 2016 Champion If one of those guys can't make it, @gripsmokewill join their ranks for having somewhat recently won a very competitive Manyo Mayhem tourney. Next up is me @DT. for having won the previous Mayhem If Peter aka @moonwalk somehow made an appearance, he would supersede us both as Seattle 2015 title winner. After some debate, I will not be counting @Tick's season zero CFT championship, though his accolades throughout his career will ensure him presence in the second division. I'll be working out a formula to determine the ranking officially, but I am certain that @manYo720 will fill out this division, the Makuuchi. The next division will be the Donkey Division comprised solely of @~Tailback King~ and @XtraLargent as the only competitors they could possibly be lumped in with are each other. Just kidding, they will be in the Juryo which is the next four ranked players, I would imagine being headed up by @boogiewithstu and whoever ends up being highest ranked among the likes of whoever else puts their name in the hat. After that is the Makushita which is an unspecified number of players comprised of any other veteran of a PNW Tecmo event, and the Sandanme will consist of every untested rookie that might get involved. These rankings will determine the each competitors' first three or four matches, with the top ranked players facing tougher competition, after that, match-ups will be determined by record, with each player playing the same amount of matches. Once we finish a round and there are 1 or less players who have yet to record 4 losses on the day, a champion will be crowned, with playoffs to determine tiebreaks, including potentially, for the title. If you recall the Mayhem tourneys that were quintuple elimination, it will be very similar to that, with the major exception that everyone will keep playing until the end. What I am hoping to achieve with this format is some great battles for regional Tecmo supremacy and some more stiff contests on down the ladder as players jostle for position, which will hopefully carry on to further tournaments down the road! There will once again be FUN prizes, themed rounds, and trophies for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd! I am HOPEFUL that this tournament will end significantly earlier then the average CFT tourney (7 or 8 pm) Get your name in the hat so I can work out the Banzuke asap. The venue is a classic neighborhood sports pub that I knew was the place when I saw someone had hooked up an Atari Flashback to one of the TVs. This in addition to them having a few arcade cabinets on site such as Street Fighter II. There is also an arcade/pinball oriented bar right next door called Coindexter. THE BEST PART of this place is that it is in the heart of Sea-town yet somehow has a HUGE free parking lot right there due to a closed DMV. It also has an alley for super-easy unloading of TVs and equipment. I am designing this to be the most action-packed Tecmo Super Bowl tournament yet. Hope to see you all there for the beginning of the next chapter in Cascadia FUCKING Tecmo!
